Presented at Globians Film Festival 2005: A saga about Israeli society from five feminine point of view. The film examines the meaning of identity in a land of immigrants like Israel -- in the search for roots, the tension between tradition and modernity, between past and present, between Israeli identity and Jewish identity, as well as in the difficulties faced by other ethnic identities. In the mirror that the five women hold up to us, we will see images different from the ones we had before the beginning of the film. This is part 3 of 6 parts focusing on Naomi coming to Israel from England where she was born.

Toda raba, thank you very much for presenting this here. Im not a crying type but I found ther were tears in viewing. She may not be a religious Jew, but what matter between one who prays and is not doing good and one who does good but not the prayers. I take the latter if a choice is presented since the latter is the reason for the prayers and doing good is the point of Judaism. A strong Jewish charachter for following. MC

breathtaking view on everyday life in Israel
We were very proud to have been able to present this extensive documentary series by Ziva Postec at the 2005 Globians Film Festival. The more you watch and listen to the lifes of Regina from the Ukraine, Aziza and Lea born in Israel, Rebecca from Ethiopia and Naomi born in England the more you understand the complexities and difficulties of Israeli identities. I learned a lot about something that is sometimes hard to understand, especially once you are German (like me).
